                                                       Dr. Andrey Alexandrov

                          Interstate Association Titan, CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), Russia


Andrey Alexandrov has been the General Director of the Interstate Association "Titan" since 2001. 

After graduating from the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys worked as a Researcher at the All-Russian 

Institute of light alloys (VILS). Later he worked in trading companies specializing in the production 

and international trade of titanium products. In 1997, he returned to VILS as Head of the Titanium 

Department. The main scientific works are related to melting of titanium and its alloys, production 

of alloys with shape memory, development of new equipment, engineering, marketing. Scientific 

degree is Ph.D Engineering. Have a big international trade experience, management and organizational

work in titanium industry. While heading Interstate Association Titan, number of members has increased 

from 19 to 61. Association has developed into authoritative industry organization with wide business and 

information contacts in CIS countries and more than 15 countries abroad. Association is full CIS representative 

in worldwide titanium organizations. Since 2002 he is the editor-in-Chief of the scientific and technical journal «Titanium».

Prof. Harry Bhadeshia

Cambridge University, United Kingdom

Harry Bhadeshia is the Tata Steel Professor of Physical Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge and Professor of Computational Metallurgy at POSTECH. He graduated with a BSc from the City of London Polytechnic, followed by a PhD at the University of Cambridge. His research is concerned with the theory of solid-state transformations in metals, particularly multicomponent steels, with the goal of creating novel alloys and processes with the minimum use of resources. Harry Bhadeshia has carried out important work on the theory of solid state phase transformations, in particular the prediction and verification of microstructural development in multicomponent steels. He has made a major contribution to the understanding of the complex bainitic transformation by developing and using thermodynamic theory to show that different modes of transformation have measurable influences on the final microstructure. He is the author or coauthor of more than 500 research papers and six books on the subject. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Engineering (India) and the American Welding Society.

Prof. Peter Hodgson

Deakin University, Australia

Professor Hodgson's research includes steel processing and the development of new alloys, and downstream ferrous and non-ferrous manufacturing processes associated with the automotive industry. He currently holds several ARC Discovery and Linkage grants, all related to metal processing. In 2004 he was made an Alfred Deakin Professor of the University for outstanding contributions to research and awarded an ARC Federation Fellow by the Australian Research Council. The University of Valenciennes award made him an Honoris Doctoris Causa in 2005 for contributions to metal forming research, while in 2006 AGH in Poland (EU) awarded him an Honorary Medal for contributions to materials science.


Prof. Matthias Militzer

University of British Columbia, Canada

Matthias Militzer is the ArcelorMittal Dofasco Chair in Advanced Steel Processing and the Director of the Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He received a Diploma in Physics from the University of Technology in Dresden, Germany in 1983 and a Ph.D. in Metal Physics from the Academy of Sciences in East Germany in 1987. He moved to Canada in 1990 where he was first a Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University before joining the University of British Columbia in 1993. He has published more than 200 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings. His primary field of research is modelling the microstructure evolution during thermo-mechanical processing of steels and other metals. Currently, his major research activities include multi-scale modelling of phase transformations in steels, accelerated cooling of steels and in-situ measurements of microstructures using laser ultrasonics for metallurgy. He is a Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) and received the ASM Henry Marion Howe Medal 2010 and the Canadian Metal Physics Award in 2014.
